Hello
I have two Fibaro wallplugs installed on an Apple TV. One of the two takes seems too far from the signal (terrace). I was thinking of installing a wifi repeater to solve this problem. Is this a good solution?
Thanks for your help.

sorry for m’y english but i’m french !

I don't understand your question very well.

  • So your Wallplug is on the terras?
  • 1 of the Wallplugs doesn't function very good?
  • Fibaro = Z-wave, Wifi repeaters won't help you

    @Sjekke This is about HomeKit version of Wall Plugs not Z-wave

     

    @Acker Yes, repeater can help with Wifi signal because HomeKit version of Fibaro Wall Plug works with ordinary wifi radio like any other wifi device.

    @mszfcz In the meanwhile I understood this. Nevertheless, if the wifi strength is poor, how about his Apple TV

    If you need to control a Wall Plug manually you don't need a Apple TV and you can do that by using only a iPhone or iPad because they are communicating directly with Wall Plugs trough wifi.

    Apple TV works like a hub for HomeKit but only for executing automated rules and for remote access and it uses Wifi too (or ethernet) so both Wall Plugs and Apple TV needs a good wifi network coverage.

    No problem, don't forget that Wall Plugs operates only at 2.4 GHz 802.11n wifi band (not 5Ghz). Good luck.
